If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Friday Fragments and SkyWatch Friday

Half-Past Kissin' Time


It's time for Friday Fragments and along with that I'm doing SkyWatch Friday.  Click on the button on the left to join in with Friday Fragments and click here to join in with SkyWatch Friday.


**  Tracy's uncle passed away and we went to the funeral Tuesday night.  You know funerals are a different kind of experience when the deceased lived to a ripe old age (90) and was prepared to meet our Lord.  His uncle's funeral was more of a celebration than a sad affair.  It is good to know where you are going when you die.

**  We got 3 hanging baskets of purple flowers and 1 patio bowl of green plants and flowers.  That is all I intend to have this year.  Hoping I can keep them alive.  I usually buy a lot more and then kill them by mid to late June.  Maybe I can work with this 4.  Time will tell.


**  Here are what our skies look like Thursday evening.  SkyWatch Friday




**And now, after seeing this on a friend's blog, I decided I wanted to do a short Summer Bucket List. I'm hoping like her, that by posting it here, it will actually help me to follow through on it.
     1.  I want to read several books.
     2.  I want to finish re-doing our bathroom.
     3.  I want to wash all the windows in our house.
     4.  I want to clean the garage and get rid of a bunch of stuff.
     5.  I hope to find at least 25 more Geocache's (that will make more than a 100 that we've found).
     6.  I hope to go on several picnics.
     7.  I hope to go stargazing at least once or twice this summer.  Hoping one will be at Caesar's Creek.  Wanting to try our new stargazing app.
     8.  We're hoping to buy a new van.
     9.  I want to make reservations and plan a November vacation.  Disney or Myrtle Beach...we'll find out.
   10.  I also want to start and complete the new Beth Moore Bible Study, Children of the Light.  I already have it and she is going to be doing it on her website starting next week. 

So that's all for Friday Fragments and SkyWatch Friday.  Hope you all have a great weekend.

  1. Good idea on making the list. I mentioned to Mary that I ought to do it ... And now seeing it on your blog confirms that for me!

  2. I like your list. I should do that too so I actually plan the things I'd like to do this summer. I'm taking my kids to St. Louis, MO and booked a hotel tonight so that's one thing checked off the list! Washing windows is on my list too. I was hoping to do it last weekend but didn't have time. Oh well, it'll wait for me. Ha!
    Sorry to hear about Tracy's uncle. No matter how prepared you are, it's still a sad time.

    1. Yes, you are right, it is. But it's a little easier.

      Hope you get the things accomplished you want to this summer and I hope I do to.

      Have a great weekend.

  6. You are so right... a life lived fully is something to be celebrated. Joy in the transition... I love when that can happen at a funeral.

  7. I'm working with a 90 yr. old client, she is amazing but I agree, while it is always said to say goodbye, it is certainly easier knowing the person lived a full live.
    I need a bucket list!
    Have a lovely weekend.

  9. Beautiful sky! And yes, we should celebrate a 90 yr old going home. That looks like a good bucket list.

  10. I'm hoping I can get my husband to repaint the kitchen, cabinets and all, for me this summer too. And I want to wash our windows washed too. Fun about the geocaching. We have yet to try that! Good luck checking things off your list. Enjoy your summer.
